Bee Keeping: Mysteries Of Bee-keeping Explained

Had I no experience further than this, I should, perhaps, rest

satisfied as to the cause, and should endeavor to apply the remedy.

Several other writers have appeared in different papers, on this

subject, and nearly all who assign a cause have given this one as the

most probable. Now I have known the chrysalis in a few stocks to be

chilled and destroyed by a sudden turn of cold weather, yet these were

removed by the bees soon after, and the stocks remained healthy. To me

the cause assigned appears inadequate to produce _all_ the results with

the larvae. After close, patient observation of fifteen years, I have

never yet been wholly satisfied that any one instance among my bees,

was thus produced.
